“It is with great shock and deep sadness that I send you this message, after learning of the tragic death of eight young football players filling a car accident at Offinso, in the Ashanti Region,” the FIFA President wrote in his letter to GFA President Kurt Edwin Simeon Okraku.
“On behalf of FIFA and the world football community, we would like to express our condolences to the Ghana Football Association, the National Juvenile Committee, and above all, to the families, friends and loved ones of the victims.
“Our thoughts also go out to the injured to whom we wish a prompt and full recovery. The international football community expresses its deepest sympathy to all of them at this very painful time”.
He added that “In these moments of great sorrow, we accompany them from a distance and hope that this message can ease their pain and provide them with support and comfort”.
